    Weirdest. Presidency. Ever.

    Seems like the time has come for a general "weird things that Trump says/does" thread.

    Today's entry:

    Just kind of out of the blue, right? How much is "a lot" of money? How much is "too much" money? How much money will he allow Boeing to make? What will he angrily tweet about tomorrow???

    It really is "cranky old man yells at the television" with a worldwide audience.

    dola,

    Then again, maybe this is a calculated attempt to justify using his own jet instead of AF1. I wonder if we will soon be hearing about how Trump Tower is much more efficiently operated than the White House.

    Damnit. 10 minutes into the thread and my weird tweet has already been bested.

    Is he postulating that NOAA "sent" the overcast weather?

    I see no reason to think this stuff will stop once he's in the WH. The thread title will be accurate soon enough.

    Is this going to be the thread about the stuff that makes regular folks love Donald Trump, then?

    I will guarantee you that my older relatives, if they noticed this story, said something like, "Can you believe this company was going to charge the government $4 billion for one airplace?!? I mean, they can just use a regular airplane with maybe some extra features to keep in touch, right? This is the kind of thing you get by having someone who isn't a politician in charge."

    I imagine a lot of it will be. I mean, I'm sure he's correct that Boeing is fleecing the US taxpayer. It's just weird for the US taxpayer to be notified on twitter by the incoming president and for him to take a side. On twitter.

    Good thing Boeing doesn't employee Americans whose jobs would have been funded with that government contract. Take that, Boeingland!

    Are we going to move the "weird things that Obama says/does" thread to the archives?
